Introduction



Product on Review: GeForce GTX 760 2GB GDDR5
Manufacturer and Sponsor: ZOTAC
Price: £209 R.R.P

Our first NVIDIA GTX760 review comes courtesy of ZOTAC. Their interpretation of the NVIDIA reference design is identical however knowing ZOTAC very well, you can be assured there will be overclocked and custom cooled AMP! editions hitting the shelves very soon. For now though, we take a look at what is NVIDIA's reference design and pair this card up with another GTX 760 to see how SLI compares because cards at this level attract the type of person who demands performance yet requires that performance at a reasonable cost.

SLI, you see, is not just for those who have more money than sense. It is now so good at scaling that even the most miserly of gamers can see the benefits of pairing a couple of mid range cards together if one is looking for extreme performance but at a reduced cost. For this the GTX 760 could well be the card of choice. It has a trimmed GK104 core; the same core used on the scorchingly fast GTX 680 and GTX 770 GPUs so we know already that it certainly has the power yet, at just £209 (R.R.P), it has a price that undercuts the competition and by a fair margin.



NVIDIA are pitching this card against the mighty AMD HD7950 and indeed the GTX 760 will be the card which replaces the GTX660Ti so it will need to be something special. NVIDIA seem to have gotten the price right and have made a solid choice by arming the latest GPU with a GK104 core however I do worry that the 2GB of GDDR5, even with a 256-bit memory controller may prove to be the deciding factor.

With this in mind I think we should take a closer look at the specifications and features of the ZOTAC GTX 760...
